“Houston, we have sprouts!” No, I don’t live in Texas. Just using that iconic phrase about “lift off!” This morning the alfalfa spouts were, well, SPROUTS! So awesome. I know there are millions of people out there that have been growing their own spouts for decades. I cultured my own yogurt back in 1984, too. But, I’ve never grown sprouts and it’s exciting.
Project Two – Lettuce Greens
I’m germinating the arugula and leaf lettuce in rockwool cubes until their roots grow through the bottom of the cubes. Then, I will put them into 3 inch net pots and suspend them in Mason Jars in which I will add nutrient rich water. For now, I am just watching the little seeds grow.
